So, my best friend and I don't get together as often as we'd like anymore, but when we do, we like to go back to the old days. We enjoy sitting around the TV, slowly getting drunk on Old Style, playing video games and wasting the day/night away. For us, it doesn't get much better than that.
However, I need your help in recommending some games for us to play this weekend. Because we haven't gotten together much recently, we've both been focusing a lot on single player games and neither one of us have a good idea of what is out there for multiplayer.
We like just about anything, whether it be co-op or against one another. Sometimes we can even get into working through a one player game (one guy playing the other watching and keeping track of stuff - then switching off) but only if the game is really good - I think we did this with the first Resident Evil and Final Fantasy X. Here are some games we've had no problem wasting a day or two playing to give you an idea (starting from WAY back in the day). You'll see that we dip into just about any genre.
All Mario Karts (Super, 64, DD) GoldenEye 64 All Maddens (1993-2005) All NCAA Footballs (1999-2005) ATV Off Road Fury Series Dynasty Warriors Series NFL Street NFL Blitz Super Monkey Ball Series Super Smash Bros Melee Halo 1 & 2 MVP Baseball Series So let me have some of you best recommendations on a few games we can try this weekend.
Tecmo Super Bowl on either the NES or SNES/Sega...each of you gets a team, you can finish the season in a long day/night. Then you compile the stats, put them in Excel, and do all kinds of fun and exciting studying of numbers!!
If you have a GBA w/ cable, Pac-Man Vs. is awesome. The more the merrier in that game.
"Now that you've built up the courage to get into the gym, let me give you five reasons why you should put in the time to train with consistency: 1. Increased strength 2. Improved self-confidence 3. Injury prevention 4. Self-discipline 5. Sex (Trust me, you'll have a better shot with the ladies if you're in shape.)" -- Making the Game, pp. 14 - 15
Are these the type of matches where you have to play as Hulk Hogan and meet certain requirements before beating King Kong Bundy the right way? Those aren't really all that fun to me. It's been years since I bought one of these.
